Victory Park is ramping up its restaurant and retail offerings, with a new restaurant, a café and retail emporium.
The development on the northwest edge of downtown has formed a venture with Dallas restaurateur Tristan Simon to create the new Victory Park venues.
Simon’s company – Rebees – has been hired to help with marketing and food and beverage services for all of Victory Park.
Rebees plans to develop and operate a 4,000-square-foot retail emporium in Victory Park that will feature locally made goods.
And Simon’s company will open and operate a 6,000-square-foot restaurant in the project.
Rebees will also set up 14,000-square-foot Victory Park co-working office center that will include a 3,500-square-foot café.
The new restaurant, retail and office developments will open next year on Victory Park Lane between Museum Way and High Market Street. The Rebees spaces will be located across the street from a new 750-seat movie theater operated by Cinépolis.
“Tristan is a master at creating concepts that resonate with customers and bring vibrancy and activity to the areas in which they are located,” Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark Property Co., Victory Park’s retail partner, said in a statement. “We are thrilled that he has committed to invest in the neighborhood and are excited to see the concepts he has in store for Victory.”
The new retail and restaurant venues are on the way at the same time Victory Park is adding almost 2,000 high-end apartments and retail space in four high-rise projects now under construction.
“The timing for Victory is right,” Simon said in a statement. “Our concepts will be an important part of the new Victory story, but we also plan to recruit many of our talented friends in the Dallas restaurant and retail community to join the mission.”
Simon previously developed several popular Dallas-area restaurants including The Porch, Hibiscus, Victor Tangos, Fireside Pies and CBD Provisions.
He has been a key player in the redevelopment boom along East Dallas’ Henderson Avenue.
